Criteria for transfer admission

Transfer credit is typically awarded for college-level courses taken at a regionally accredited college or university, provided a grade of C- or better was earned. Each course is evaluated individually, and Ithaca College reserves the right to not award transfer credit for courses deemed unacceptable.
Transfer students automatically considered for scholarships, and may apply for institutional and federal financial aid.
The FAFSA is the only form required to apply for federal financial aid. Ithaca College requires submission of the CSS Profile to determine whether you are eligible for institutional funding in addition to federal financial aid.
Please remember to release your data to us.
- The Ithaca College school code for the FAFSA is 002739.
- The Ithaca College code for the CSS Profile is 2325.
The priority deadline for both the FAFSA and CSS Profile is November 1 for spring semester applicants and January 15 for fall semester applicants.
Eligibility requirements and descriptions of aid programs are available on the Tuition and Financial Aid website.
